OUR EXPERIENCE YOUR ADVANTAGE
First paragraph — Black Diamond Pest Control was formed in 1940 and remained a small operation until 1987 when Keith Duncan, Sr., purchased the company and built the foundation for steady growth that resulted in national recognition as a PCT Top 100 company in 2004. Keith Duncan, Jr., assumed operational leadership at that point and guided Black Diamond to triple revenue over the following decade by expanding the corporate vision, implementing fresh ideas, and embracing innovation. Currently, Black Diamond Corporate in Jeffersonville, IN, maintains a fleet of over 100 service vehicles and 150 employees. The first franchise location (Indianapolis) launched in April, 2015, a second corporate office in Lexington, KY, launched in January, 2016, and plans are in motion for further expansion.
